BMW GROUP SUSTAINABILITY.

BMW Group is committed to sustainability that extends throughout the company’s entire value chain. Our claim: The greenest electric car in the world will be produced by BMW.

This objective centres on reducing lifecycle CO2 emissions per vehicle by at least a third by 2030 compared with 2019 levels. The strategy includes cuts to CO2 emissions by at least 80 per cent in production, 40 per cent in the use phase and at least 20 per cent in the supply chain.
 

The aluminium in our cars is made using the power of the sun.
 

Our batteries see second lives as storage units for hydro-electric energy after their time in our cars.
 

We are the only car company committed to this circular approach to resources – and our pledge is to avoid rather than offset emissions altogether.
